Editorial Reviews


"A captivating read from the opening shock of a stoning to the cliffhanger conclusion, Deborah Rising provides action-packed adventure steeped in Jewish tradition and tribal institutions...a great historical fiction read!" Kathryn Voigt, Historical Novels Review
"A stunning historical fantasy-an epic journey that no reader could guess. It's unlike anything I have read. Realistically told and captured the time period perfectly-can be read by teens and adults." Urban Lit Magazine
"The story of this young woman has moved me emotionally, spiritually, and has inspired me. Highly Intriguing." Hollywood Book Reviews
"Deborah Rising is a perfect read for history enthusiasts. Riveting!" The US Review of Books
"Azrieli manages to vividly recreate the milieu of a story filled with biblical history, myths, fanaticism and sexism-Deborah, for all the tragedies she has endured, continues to survive while never losing faith. A seductive saga, peopled with a fascinating array of characters." Bookpleasures
"This enthralling story gives the reader an amazing insight into what life was really like for women at a fascinating time in history. I found this book absolutely absorbing!" The English Informer
"Azrieli sets down a captivating fictionalized life story for this incredible woman. Believable and engrossing-chronicling the life of one of the Bible's and history's greatest women." Pacific Book Review
"Rich description and engaging dialogue bring the story of Deborah to life. Though she lived long ago, her struggles will no doubt resonate with today's readers. The book is a page-turner, there are no lulls. Full of suspenseful adventure!" Oak Tree Reviews
"No story has ever hooked me right at the beginning quite like this one - Deborah's epic survival adventure as a Hebrew girl coming of age in biblical times. The character development was spot on, the descriptions of the sites and geography felt real and accurate, the action narration was vivid, involving all the senses within the imageries. It's entertaining, suspenseful, and heart wrenching - definitely a five-star captivating page-turner! Can't wait for the second book!" Susan Violante, The Reader Views
"A superior, heart-pounding and inspirational read--a thoroughly compelling saga that's hard to put down--not just drama, but an in-the-moment, you-are-there!" Midwest Book Review
"Deborah is strong, and her story is a compelling one. Azrieli does a masterful job at building up a tale that feels true to history. Realistic and vivid!" San Francisco Book Review
"Deborah Rising brings to light the injustice faced by women long ago and creates a strong female protagonist that is hard to come by. Well written!" Seattle Book Review
"Deborah Rising powerfully depicts the political, religious, and cultural landscapes of the Jewish people. The themes are as relevant today as they were many years ago -- sexism, misuse of power, effective leadership, and political repression. Azrieli has a powerful gift for plot and character and for making history come alive. A masterpiece!" Manhattan Book Review
"Vivid descriptions, intriguing twists. Readers are in for a real treat!" Midwest Book Review.

From the Author

A visit to the archeological remains of the ancient city of Shiloh in the Samariah Hills (about 25 miles east of modern-day Tel Aviv) fueled my imagination about an enigmatic gap in the dramatic story of the first woman to lead any nation in recorded human history: Deborah. While the Book of Judges describes Deborah's stunning success as a prophet, a judge and a military leader who liberated the Israelites from Canaanite oppression, there is no information about her family, upbringing and youth. How could a girl, growing up in a world controlled by men, rise to rule over them? What hardship forged her formidable tenacity? What setbacks hardened her resilience? What challenges honed her skills? These are the fascinating mysteries I attempt to unravel by telling Deborah's dramatic story in Deborah Rising and its sequels.
